Rabobank has been a dedicated sponsor of previous IFAJ programs over the years, and is enthusiastic about focusing new attention on the growth of digital media in agriculture.
“As Rabobank we are proud to sponsor the IFAJ-Rabobank Digital Media Award as it recognizes the innovative ways in how stakeholders across the global food and agribusiness sector are informed and facilitated in sharing knowledge,” says Richard Vogeler, positioning manager for Rabobank International.
“The bank’s mind-set is to be involved, nearby and leading and we are therefore supportive towards new and innovative ways of communication that bring people closer together in such a leading sector as food and agribusiness.”
